Question about 1992 Chevrolet C1500

2 Answers

I have a 1992 chevy c1500 ext cab truck. 5.0 engine, 2wd. The other day i was driving on the freeway when all of a sudden the engine just died. after pulling it over to the shoulder i tried starting it again but just would not start, had to get it towed home. I've tried starting it plenty of times, the engine would turn but will not start. What could be my problem?

I would start by checking the fuses....if all are ok, check for spark and fuel.....spray a little carb cleaner in the throttle body and see if it will start. If it starts for a short period then you know you have a fuel problem.

Your problem my friend is the fuel pump. These go out and your dead in the water. If all electrical systems seem fine and no warning light then I would highly suspect the fuel pump. Can you have someone get in and turn the key on and then turn it over while your looking into the throttle body, check and see if your getting gas, if none then it.s the pump. You can also try a LITTLE bit of starting fluid in the breather and it should try to start or may even run a few seconds, again this points to the pump or a completely clogged fuel filter. The pump is located in the gas tank just so you know.

check your timing, check that your ignition pick up coil is good. also check your fuel pressure. and check for any vacuum leaks. double check your coolant temp sensor to the ecm it tells the ecm what temp it is and the ecm adjusts the fuel amount accordingly.

Check engine light on? Does it run normal driving it? Sounds like a vacuum leak. Check the gasket under the throttle body.
